Cricket fraternity comes to the aid and help pouring in from all across the country. However Jacob denied to recieve any such blank cheques from cricketers.
Talking to the media after coming out from the ventilator Martin said he is thankful to his godfather and some young cricketers for helping him. However he showed his anger on the ex cricketers for not standing with him and called them selfish.
“Its very disheartening to see the ex Baroda cricketers not come forward to help their cricketer who gives so much to the game and won Ranji trophy cup after legendary D.K. Gaekwad. They all are selfish and busy in increasing their bank balance. There is no unity in them and the money they boast of is of no use when you are not helping your cricketer, ” said Martin.

Rahul and his godfather Saurav Ganguly to help him. “Saurav Ganguly send the help in just two hours after getting the details and asked my wife to tell me to get up and serve the game. The inspiring words help me to gain strength and comes out. The young cricketers like Krunal Pandya and K.L. Rahul extend help to him in no time sending an example to others. Its sad to see the cricketers are not coming forward to the aid,” said Martin.
